I'm considering a trip to Flying R this spring and would appreciate any information from folks that have made the trip.

We live about 65 miles from Flying R. We will be attending an ACTHA ride there so we drove up to check it out. Here's what I can tell you from our quick visit: paved road to camp entrance, no problem getting large rigs in. Lots of easily-accessible sites (picnic tables/fire rings) with water/elec., some are pull through, others offer plenty of shade. From the outside the store/bathhouse look very nice. Barns are in the shade and close to camp, stalls look adequate. Have a variety of trails on their property and in the surrounding Mark Twain Nat. Forest. Folks we have talked to on the phone have been friendly and helpful. We are excited to find a place so close to us that is this nice! Website: http://www.flying-r-ranch.com

Our first visit to Flying R was last fall and we have our reservations for this spring. 

The camp is first rate; clean campground, large SAFE stalls, and bedding.  They will clean your stalls for $5 a day - loved that.  Clean, modern bathhouse, store for forgotten items, sodas, tack, etc.  Electric and water hookups. 

The covered wood stalls are close to your campsite and the sites are nicely spaced, many sit back in the trees and are shaded.  You can have your campfire right next to your rig with your horses close by.  That is how we like to camp.  Lots of water faucets and hoses to easily water or rinse your horses after a ride.

The trails were great.  Several water crossings that are fun but not too deep with excellent footing.  The trails are easy to challenging.  Some friends who endurance ride with their arabs went on the Jesse James (I think that was the one) trail and they said it was a good challenge.   

But the other trails had some nice climbs, beautiful views, and the trails were really well maintained.  You can leave Flying R land and go into the Mark Twain trail system.  

There was a nice mix of wooded trails for walking/climbing and then more open trails where you could trot/gait/canter.  Some open pastures too. 

We really had a good time and can highly recommend Flying R.  It was a six hour haul for us and definitely worth it.

Love Flying R! Went last June and had a great time not only riding the trails but kayaking and swimming in the river. It is one of the nicest/cleanest campgrounds and we've made reservations for memorial day this year! Can't wait to go back and definitely recommend.

We were there twice last year and we can certainly recommend it.All of the things the other members posted are true.We love it and were excited that this nice place is fairly close to where we live rather than having to undertake hours of driving for a nice campground and riding area.The folks that own it are some of the nicest people around."Best of America on Horseback" was there last year,also,twice,and,filmed both times.You can access the video through their website (Best of America's) if you want to see it.
